- St. James Infirmary
- American folk
song of anonymous origin. Made famous in 1928 by Louis
Armstrong, later by Joe Primrose& others.

- It was down in Old Joe's
barroom, At the corner by the square.
The drinks were served as usual, And the usual crowd was there.
- Now on my left stood Big
Joe McKennedy, His eyes were bloodshot red.
And as he looked at the gang around him, These were the very
words he said:
- "I went down to the
St. James Infirmary, I saw my baby there,
She was lyin' on a long white table, So young, so cold, so fair."
- Well let her go, let her
go, God bless her, wherever she may be.
She may search this wide world over, And never find another man
